In 2013 and 2014 Francis taught the introduction to web design course at mac Birmingham, the pioneering arts complex.

Francis designed the lessons around helping learners get the most from free and low cost digital tools such as blogs, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr.


The course had a strong practical focus, with each learner receiving personalised support to apply their learning to a project of their choice. Projects included designing a creative portfolio using and establishing a social media identity for a new business venture.
